Abstract

This study analysed the usefulness of gene sequences as an alternative phylogenetic and/or identification marker for vibrios. The sequences suggest that the genus is polyphyletic. The high heterogeneity observed within vibrios was congruent with former polyphasic taxonomic studies on this group. species clustered together and apparently nested within vibrios, while was apart from other vibrios. Within the vibrios, and clustered apart from the other genus members. - and -related species formed compact separated groups. On the other hand, species related to appeared scattered in the phylogenetic tree. The pairs and , and and and clustered completely apart from each other. There was a correlation of 0·58 between and 16S rDNA pairwise similarities. Strains of the same species have at least 94 % sequence similarity. gene sequences are much more discriminatory than 16S rDNA. For 16S rDNA similarity values above 98 % there was a wide range of A similarities, from 83 to 99 %.
